I recently came across Perplexity AI, an AI-powered chatbot like loads of others (ChatGPT, for example), but it can search the internet, is free (for now?), and has its additions.
The best things I've seen on it after some querying is that it gives you links to the sources of its answer so it acts like a search tool as well as a summary/chat tool. It also provides "you might be interested in" topics after running a query and lets you have a conversation on the results.
It also doesn't require a login, which is cool.
I've read that some believe it could dethrone Google. With Bing using OpenAI and now this, Google could be threatened, but we know it's got its own implementations in the works, too (Bard, for example).
What do you guys think? Do you use AI-supported search tools - which ones? Have you seen Perplexity AI by now? Are you excited about the developments of AI search?
